F2 - 2019 Race of Sakhir - Feature Race

Nicholas Latifi has won the FIA Formula 2 season-opening Feature Race at the Bahrain International Circuit.

The Canadian established a five-second lead in the first race stint after passing pole-sitter Luca Ghiotto and Louis Deletraz. A slow pit stop saw him plunge to sixth but he fought his way back to the front in the second stint, where he pulled out an eight second gap to his rivals to record his third career race win in the series.

Ghiotto recovered from a clutch issue at the start to take second place, while Sergio Sette Camara finished third.

Sunday’s reverse grid Sprint Race will see Mick Schumacher line up in pole position after he snatched eighth place on the final lap.
